The First Date

Well, hello!

“Is anyone alive out there? Can anyone hear me?”

(disclaimer, Lila wrote this. But I decided to add a little bit of commentary to it. Im in the fancy italics -Brad)

$5 to the first person who can tell me what movie that is from. Actually, $5 to anyone who is actually reading this! Thank you, and please keep reading.  (that is a joke, she doesn’t have $5 in her bank account to give you anyway. #funfact Lila recently had to charge yarn to her credit card #themoreyouknow)

I’m feeling like this post is a little bit like a first date. We don’t know you, you don’t know us, kiiinda really awkward. At least I think that’s how it goes because my last first date was over two years ago and to be honest I can’t remember even remember yesterday. But I have an image in my head of two people sitting across from each other feeling weird and awkward and so that’s what I’m going with. I also assume that these two people would be asking each other the ‘important’ questions, which is what we are going to do on today’s post.

Let’s start with Brad.

1: whaassssssssuuuuuuuup?
this isn’t a real question. the sky. my blood sugar. what am i doing? buying junk food at albertsons for lunch.

2: what is the #1 most played song on your ipod?
shake it off-taylor swift

3: if you could be one age forever, what age would that be? why?
22. cuz then i could always dress up like a hipster and make fun of my exes.

4: is a picture really worth 1000 words? explain?

(i never answered this one because while asking me questions, Lila numbered them wrong so i couldn’t see this. #rude)

5: say you are writing an autobiography, what will the title be?
my life in a bottle.

6: at what age did you become an adult?
well, i’m a barista who lives with his parents. so i’m going to say i’m probably not an adult yet.

My turn!

1: where’s waldo?
i have no idea. but in my experience i have learned the hard way not to wear red and white striped shirts.

2: what is your favorite time of year?
april 25th. not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket!
p.s. i’m sorry for having two movie quotes in one post, i promise to maybe never do it again.

(she is def going to do it again. and again. and again.)

3: If you could have anyone as your mentor, who would it be? why?
this is a dumb question because the obvious answer is beyonce and if anyone says differently they are lying.

4: name a song that would be in the soundtrack of your life.
*note: my answer was bad, to which Brad added an even worse comment. Both have been deleted for your safety& well being. You’re welcome*

5: what is the best part of waking up?
knowing that i’m that much closer to getting to go to bed again (:

6: at what age did you become an adult?
in some ways i’ve been an adult for evaaaaaa. i’m always the dd, i go to bed at a reasonable hour, and i haven’t locked my keys in my car in over a year. but then i like to eat cheerios for dinner and i don’t know how to just watch one episode of new girl on netflix, so maybe i’m not an adult yet after all. you decide.

we hope you’ve enjoyed our first date. we will be anxiously sitting by our phones waiting for you to text us and ask us out again. and then we will, of course, wait the standard 24-48 hours and write seven drafts of our reply which all of our friends will review.

    I’m pretty sure it is never too hot for Lila. April 25th? I’m not buying it.
